L CITY TURNS OVER
A NEW POLITICAL LEAF
The Last of the Old Line Politicians Swept Out of
Office and The City Will Try a New Broom
For the first time in years the
voters of Elizabeth City display
ed an active and intelligent in
terest in a municipal election
and the voters of Elizabeth City
swept the last of the politicians
from office in Tuesday's muni
cipal election and elected a citi
zen's Board of Aldermen.
Elizabeth City's new, Board of
Aldermen which Vill take office
on Monday, June 2, as, a result
of Tuesday's election, follows
First Ward: G. F. Derrickson
and J. R- Bowden.
Second Ward: J. B. Leigh
and C. M. Cooper.
Third Ward: P. C. Cahoon
and W. A. Worth.
Fourth Ward: H. G. Parks
and Bascon Sawyer.
These men succeed Mathias Owens,
J. B. Ferebee, L. "W. Anderson, P. C.
Cahoon, C. C. Pappendick, H. G. Parks,
and J. J. Pritchard, Messrs. Cahoon
and Parks succeeding themselves.
The election was a clean sweep for
good government. No one believes that
the old line politicians in Elizabeth City
can control a single vote on the new
board. It means that Phil Sawyer will
go out of the office of Mayor on the
first Monday in June. It means that
many another favorite and henchman
of the old Mack Sawyer gang will have
to make way for new material.
The vote by wards follows:

gan to lose its grip the minute the. bet
ter citizens in the town beerin to tmrv
their, differences. The election Tof W. O.
Saunders to the General Assembly
from this county last summer, showed
that the politicians had lost out. The
election Of W. O. Sanniloro tha mnet
hated enemy of the Gang, showed the
way tmngs were going.

eleven years old in June. And for just
eleven years come June this news
paper has DOinted out 'the crimes nf
the Mack Sawyer Gang in this town
and county and implored the citizen
ship to oust them. It has taken the
town eleven years to come around, but
it made a good job of it last Tuesday. '
The Chamber of. Commerce -is en
titled to much of the credit for Tues
day's victory for good government.
The Chamber of Commerce didn't take
a hand in the election; it's policy is to
steer clear of the rocks and shoals of
politics. But the Elizabeth City Cham
ber of Commerce has taught Elizabeth
City people a new pride in their town
and, in a year, has done much to school
them in team , work and organization.
Team work and organization plus a
new civic pride did much to make
Tuesday's election a landslide for good

The Gang Died Hard
Even the Second Ward, the. strong
hold of the Mack Sawyer gang redeem
ed itself in Tuesday's election and elect
ed out and put anti-Sawyer men. There
were seven candidates for Aldermen
in the Second Ward. Everything was
done to confuse the voters and split
the vote, to enable the ringsters to
slip their men in. But the Second
Warfl is wise in Politics. Old Man
Mack and his gang had fooled most of
the voters in that ward for 20 years
ari ti crowd had learned their tricks.
The old gang died hard. Mathias
Owens and Jim Ferebee in the Second

fought battle. Every trick was played
in their behalf, but most of the tricks

Mayor Sawyer played the fool when
he challenged the vote of O. F. Gilbert,
one of the oldest younger residents
of the ward and one of the city's lead
ing business men and a big tax payer.
Sawyer challenged air. Gilbert's vote
and got away with it. O. F. Gilbert
didn't vote. 'But the effect of Sawyer's
challenge' was to make O. F Gilbert
roll up his sleeves arid go to work for
the overthrow of Owens and Ferebee.

Back To Burke Culpepper
The defeat of the Mack Sawyer
machine in Elizabeth City began with
the. Rurke Culpepper revival in Eliz

that time an effort was made to recon

who had been at odds for a good many
years. -The peopie of Elizabeth City
were at loggerheads . because , shrewd

their quota of the $35,000,000 Mission

will undertake to raise during the wee
of May 18-25. .
The First Methodist Church of this
city has been assessed $22,500 as its
quota of the $35,000,000 fund. There are
863 members of the First church and
seven of this number have already sig

the church's quota. This will leave
$12,500 to be raised next week and the
church purposes to raise the entire sum
